With the very limited knowledge that I have gained in the last couple of
days, it what you have now includes polkit-gnome, you should be able to
launch gparted from the menu by creating the file mentioned in the other
thread and changing the "Exec" line in gparted.desktop to "pkexec gparted."
I think that the key, as I learned from Armin, is that polkit cannot
launch a gui by itself. It needs polkit-gnome or, this might be wrong,
lxpolkit. In my search for knowledge I found that both sudo and polkit
operate independently of one another. You can defeat the one with the other.
I'm doing things in this BLFS build that I've never done before. It's
interesting, informative, and aggravating. :)
